3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A sweeter, more subdued version of Kalamazoo Stout. Not much in the way of hop bitterness, and the malt profile is also less aggressive in comparison to the Kalamazoo. Still, this is an enjoyable stout and easy to drink.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours deep brown with minimal off-white head. Nose is sweet, slight roast, but mostly shades of chocolate. Palate is medium, sticky and tantalizing. Flavor is creamy sweet that becomes bitter chocolate and lasts in this direction. Definitely not a single note sweet stout. This is enjoyable in its depth, but also relatively simple and session-worthy.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Opaque ebony body with a medium brown foamy head. Aroma of chocolate and sweet roasted mocha. Creamy and medium-bodied. When I bought this, I thought that it would be too malty, as they use ten different kinds of malt, but it’s actually very well balanced. Not as good as the Java Stout, but definitely delicious nonetheless.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
I am in love with this beer. Typical malty / roasty aroma that is fitting for a Stout. But the drink! Holy Almighty Roast! Bang, like a bag of roasted coffee beans was just thrown in your general direction at a high rate of speed with the intention to take your head off. Super, super burnt carmel and toffee. Then, just as quckly as it came, the flavor dissapears into a mildly roasted flavor of... Graham Crackers? Good stuff!

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours very dark brown with a bubbly tan head that fades rather quickly. Aroma is very chocolately and reminds of hershey syrup with some roastiness as well. Flavor is dark chocolate with roasted malts and coffee and some lactose. Very smooth mouthfeel but slightly thinner than expected. Very easy to drink.
